Colours are magical. Colours are inspirational. Colours can describe you mood. Colours can make a statement.
For most designers colour inspiration comes from the world around them. From nature, their mood, to satisfy a brief, or to simply test something new.
I take my inspiration from different places. I have always been interested in how different colour combinations work. When I was studying for my Interior Design MA I became very interested in the colour wheel. How the opposites work, how the adjacents work.
Nature is a great inspiration, in a classic way – such as red and green for holly and ivy. Nature often gives us very harmonious colours that are very relaxing and pleasing on the eye.
